Be Social

Stay connected! Your brain depends on it. There are various ways you can protect your brain health — having meaningful social connections is one of them.


Having a strong social circle, connecting with friends, volunteering in your community and maintaining family ties is good for you. Research shows developing new bonds and cultivating current relationships can help to lower blood pressure, decrease stress levels and more.
